Masterclass Lied Interpretation for Singers and Pianists Prof. Karola Theill
Karola Theill, as one of very few women in the field of lied interpretation, has made herself a name as both pianist and lecturer. Karola Theill has been or still is a lied pianist for Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Benjamin Bruns, Okka von der Damerau, Angela Denoke, Matthias Goerne, Klaus Häger, Fionnuala McCarthy and many more. She teaches as honorary professor at the Hanns Eisler School of Music Berlin and holds a lieder class at the Rostock University of Music and Drama. She regularly holds lieder masterclasses not only in Germany, but also in Poland, Italy, Latvia, Israel, the USA and China.
Lieder enable the development of an intensive synthesis between the poetic text and the composer’s musical idea. As lied interpreters, if we are able to translate these intentions to the present moment, it can lead to an exciting and moving performance.
This course is for singers and/or pianists who can register either on their own, or as existing Lied-Duos.
